How is TOMATO nail polish zero irritant?

It’s a water based formula and uses colors only derived from non toxic pigments, thus it is odorless. Omitting potentially harmful synthetics and harsh preservatives. Gentle enough for your hypersensitive skin, nose and the environment.

Who can use TOMATO?

People with sensitivities to chemicals and has adverse reactions to even non-toxic polishes which might include irritants such as ethyl and butyl acetate. Anyone who is looking for an alternative nail polish that aligns with their philosophy of clean living. If you have hypersensitive skin, please do a patch test on a small area of your skin first before application.

What if I don't have any sensitivities to regular polishes?

Our nail polish was not created for people who are used to regular and gel polishes. Because it's a water based formulation, it can't be as durable as regular polishes. So if you are used to regular or gel polishes, it will take a whole new mindset to make that switch. TOMATO will last half the time of regular polishes before it starts to chip, and needs our special Eraser Gel to remove instead of Acetone.

How long does TOMATO nail polish lasts after application?

Water based polish won’t have the same durability as regular chemical filled polishes. However with the correct application and care, it can 3 - 5 days before it starts chipping.

Any tips to make my manicure last longer?

  • Avoid hand sanitizers as alcohol dissolves our polish.

  • Allow 3 hours for polish to fully dry before any contact with water - especially warm/ hot water.

  • Best time apply is in the evening or before bedtime, so it has plenty of time to dry naturally while you sleep.

  • The smoother the nail surface, the longer your manicure will last.

Because the formula is water based, it needs a slightly thicker consistency to have the same color brilliance and shine as regular polish.
